Domaine of Madame Elisabeth, Versailles

4.4
#5 of 9 in Parks in Versailles
Louis XVI bought Domaine of Madame Elisabeth for his younger sister, Elizabeth, in 1783, as a place where she and others could take a break from life at court. But that ended in 1789 with the French Revolution. Renovated several times over the years, the site now consists of a rectangular main building with two floors flanked by two pavilions. Of the original house, only three rooms in the apartment of Madame Elizabeth remain intact--ironically, rooms she never used because she slept every night at the castle. On the grounds, you will find an orangery as well as some magnificent gardens. To visit Domaine of Madame Elisabeth and other attractions in Versailles, use our Versailles trip maker .

  • Pleasant garden in Versailles, photo exhibition in the Park on the Yvelines Department. Beautiful houses and tt at the bottom of the garden, small chicken coop. You can even take a drink on the terrace of the House at the back overlooking a garden with a chicken coop that connected without hen... . A small friendly green area where children can run alone!

  • Very pretty and obviously being improved (Pécresse Versailles President of region?). On the other hand "show pictures" (a bit like the Luco grids is clenching). We just visit the park or walk around any need to add a pseudo photo exhibition, abyme effect is not always welcome.

  • I love this park! Just across the street during a few years a real corner of Paradise we believe it a little tidy is when it happens and in fact in turns of this park are hiding a lot of surprise looks like the campaign for a moment however the superv Park supervisor LLE our slightest gesture so a bit the feeling of being watched (including to stick to the rules not be shirtless nude) but ca don't ruin this great place!

  • A lovely garden to visit if you want somewhere quiet to sit and enjoy the sun. Not as grand as the chateau gardens but beautiful all the same
  • The park and house are very lovely & complete a day of visits in Versailles. I highly recommend this place. You can easily imagine the lives of ladies back in Louis XVI & Marie-Antoinette's days ! The domain is located on the avenue in front of the Palace; you can walk there (about 10/15 min) or take the 171 bus in front of the Palace and it's the 3 bus stop (about 3/5 min). One piece of advice: visit the website in order to know the opening days .
  • A Hidden Gem !!! Don't Tell Anyone :)
  • Perfect for chilling
  • Very nice place. Nice Park or it is possible to arise in the grass and fuck PIC. Too bad the lack of trash. A trace to find out where to go would be welcome. What place could be more attractive with animations

Where to stay in Versailles

Though you can visit the palace of Versailles on a day trip from Paris, travelers interested in exporing outside the château should consider staying in the town of Versailles, Rambouillet, or Fontainebleau. All three of these boast historical centers and a number of accommodations for visitors, from swanky hotels to short-term apartment rentals. You may want to avoid the other nearby towns, like Senlis, which don't offer any lodging in their old town centers. To put yourself within walking distance of the grand palace, pick a spot along the main avenue in the town of Versailles. When staying here, you can experience first-hand what city planners took into consideration when building this new capital.
